Not sure that it matters, but I was using 7.1 to install. Also tried Mandrake
8.0 with Reiser.

Here is what would happen:

1)I created the array using the IBM software on the hardware level.
2)Reboot and start the Suse install.
3)Choose custom disk partitions and made this configuration:

About 10 minutes into the install the machine would freeze and not even the
ctrl-alt-bkspace would recover the machine. Attempt the install again and
use ext2 file system for above config, all was ok. I need smaller file blocks
since this machine will be a web server. The default 4k block would chew up
the drive with those small php and html files.

Just for fun I did try this on all three Netfinity machines and no luck.

what could be the problem of using reiser and software raid5 ???
i mean, there were some issues in the paste concerning the
raid code in linux conflicted with reiserfs (the buffers of each
conflicted ....)
but now it works .... i have it happily running here without any
problems .... (raid5 and reiserfs)

but if there are issues with raid&reiser (in 7.2) i really wish to know .....
